Does it work?

Yes! I tested my neem oil deodorant recipe on myself on some pretty hot days over two and a half weeks. And I’m still using it daily!

Can anyone wear it?

Absolutely! The essential oils used help to fight odor causing bacteria. While they do lend the deodorant a light scent, it’s pretty unisex and not at all overpowering. Plus, the absence of baking soda means no itchy, red pits in a week or so for those of us with sensitive skin. And, it’s vegan.

Does it smell like neem oil?

Nope. I’ll be one of the first to admit that neem oil can smell pretty awful solo. But you can’t detect any trace of the neem’s natural scent in my neem oil deodorant recipe. Like the essential oils used for this deodorant recipe, neem oil is also fantastic at fighting odor causing bacteria as it’s naturally anti-bacterial.

Natural Neem Oil Deodorant Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

1.5 oz. arrowroot powder
.5 oz. magnesium hydroxide
1 oz. mango butter
.2 oz. fractionated coconut oil
.2 oz. neem oil
.15 oz. emulsifying wax
.05 oz. stearic acid
.05 oz. pink Himalayan salt, fine ground
1 mL lavender essential oil
1.5 mL patchouli essential oil
1 mL tea tree essential oil
.5 mL rosemary essential oil

Instructions:

Begin by using a digital scale to weigh out mango butter, emulsifying wax and stearic acid. Combine in a glass Pyrex measuring cup and heat at 50% power in the microwave until fully melted. (Alternately you may use a double boiler.)

Remove from microwave (or heat source) and weigh out the fractionated coconut oil and neem oil into the melted butter, wax and stearic acid. Stir to combine.

Use graduated plastic transfer pipettes to measure out each of the essential oils. Use a new pipette for each essential oil to avoid cross contamination. Stir into the now liquid deodorant base. Set aside.

In a separate glass Pyrex measuring cup, weigh out the salt, arrowroot powder and magnesium hydroxide. Mix well to combine.

Now slowly pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients whisking as you go until the wet and dry ingredients are thoroughly combined.

Pour the deodorant into a 2.65 oz. deodorant tube with cap. I used the silver deodorant tubes with a domed cap from SKS Bottle & Packaging. Alternately you could also use their white styrene twist up deodorant tubes that I used for my cracked heel repair balm recipe found here. (My neem oil deodorant recipe makes one 2.65 oz. deodorant.)

Due to the heat sensitive nature of this product you’ll need to wait at least 48 hours before your deodorant is ready for use. Otherwise it will not be fully set up and will be soft and/or melt easily. Even if you place your deodorant in the refrigerator, it will still be at least two full days before it reaches final consistency. (You’ll find it softens back up after removing from the refrigerator before it solidifies to its final consistency.)

If you are simply allowing your deodorant to solidify at room temperature, allow at least three days for it to reach its final consistency. This is especially important in summer.

Once your deodorant has set up, it’s ready to be labeled!

Prefer a jar deodorant over a stick deodorant? Use .1 oz. of emulsifying wax instead of .15 oz. and omit the stearic acid entirely.

Natural Spray Deodorant Recipe for Wookiees with Printable Labels

This natural spray deodorant recipe isn't just for wookiees. It's pretty much awesome for anyone looking for a non-irritating natural deodorant alternative. But just for fun there are free printable "Wook Away Spray" deodorant labels for your finished product!

This natural spray deodorant recipe isn’t just for wookiees. It’s pretty much awesome for anyone looking for a non-irritating natural deodorant alternative. (There’s ZERO baking soda!) But just for fun there are free printable “Wook Away Spray” deodorant labels for your finished product!

Inspired by my boyfriend, who is a HUGE Phish fan and plans to on “drag” me to the summer festival, Lock’n, this year, I felt obliged to make a natural spray deodorant recipe for him. There’s nothing like 4-5 days of wook stink on a guy who likely won’t shower during the festival and doesn’t wear deodorant. While he’s technically what I’d describe as a little bit hippie – the urban dictionary top definition of wookiee (which they’ve misspelled as wookie in regards to this instance) is not particularly flattering of anyone. But the wookiee culture as I’ve learned has quite the following. So I figured, why not have fun with it? (For more festival DIY’s visit Soap Deli News blog here.)

I originally formulated my natural spray deodorant recipe without any arrowroot powder. However, I found this made my deodorant spray feel sticky once sprayed on. Which was an absolute no go for my bf. So I added some arrowroot powder to the formula and voila! – I had my wook away spray!

This natural spray deodorant recipe isn't just for wookiees. It's pretty much awesome for anyone looking for a non-irritating natural deodorant alternative. But just for fun there are free printable "Wook Away Spray" deodorant labels for your finished product!

I used a blend of patchouli, lavender and tea tree essential oils for my natural spray deodorant recipe. In the amounts given you’ll find this gives this natural spray deodorant a more unisex scent that’s not really floral nor does it smell like someone drowned themselves in patchouli. It’s more of a fresh scent that most people won’t find offensive and the essential oils were also of course chosen for their specific skin care properties. That they are anti-bacterial helps to prevent odors. However, feel free to substitute your own essential oil blend for scent preference.

I thought my natural spray deodorant recipe looked really great in the glass jars from Infinity Jars. I specifically used their 100 mL fine mist spray bottle for this natural spray deodorant recipe. Not only does the deep violet glass look great for this application with my “Wook Away Spray” labels (they appear black,) but these glass jars also offer an airtight seal and UV protection which will help to extend the shelf life of your final product. (You can find a variety of glass cosmetic bottles and glass jars for your skin care products at Infinity Jars here.)

Natural Spray Deodorant Recipe (aka Wook Away Spray)

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

2.6 oz. witch hazel extract
1/2 teaspoon magnesium hydroxide
1/2 teaspoon arrowroot powder
1 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt, extra fine ground
12 drops patchouli essential oil
12 drops lavender essential oil
7 drops tea tree oil

Instructions:

I specifically used the witch hazel extract from Mountain Rose Herbs for my natural spray deodorant recipe as it’s been double distilled and contains 86% witch hazel extract and only 14% alcohol. However, if you prefer witch hazel without alcohol, then Thayer’s Alcohol-free Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera is a suitable alternative.

Measure or weigh out the witch hazel in glass Pyrex measuring cup. (I used a digital scale to weigh mine as is habit for most recipes however measuring out the amount needed won’t affect product performance as the difference is so little.)

Using a measuring spoon, measure out the magnesium hydroxide, arrowroot powder and pink Himalayan salt. Whisk these ingredients into the witch hazel until there are no clumps and the magnesium hydroxide and arrowroot powder have dissolved.

Now, using a different graduated transfer pipette or glass dropper for each, add the essential oils and mix again.

Use a small funnel to pour the mixture into your 100 mL glass jar and screw on the fingertip mister.

To use simply spray onto clean armpits as desired, shaking vigorously before each use to avoid clogging your sprayer. Reapply afterwards as needed.

This natural spray deodorant recipe isn't just for wookiees. It's pretty much awesome for anyone looking for a non-irritating natural deodorant alternative. But just for fun there are free printable "Wook Away Spray" deodorant labels for your finished product!

If you’d like to use my “Wook Away Spray” labels for this natural spray deodorant recipe, you can download the free printable “Wook Away Spray” PDF labels here. Then simply print the labels onto a full size label sheetWorldLabel has great prices for bulk labels and sticker sheets – cut out and adhere to the front of your 100 mL fine mist spray bottle.

Ingredients:

19.4 oz. Crafter’s Choice (or similar) clear basic melt and pour soap base
9.75 oz. Crafter’s Choice (or similar) white basic melt and pour soap base
1/2 teaspoon Australian Midnight Black Clay
.37 oz. skin safe fragrance oil, of choice

Learn how to make your own DIY Star Wars inspired soaps with this DIY Star Wars melt and pour soap tutorial that creates fun Millennium Falcon and X-Wing Fighter shaped soaps soaring through the galaxy!

Tools & Supplies:

Millennium Falcon & X-Wing Star Wars Silicone Mold
Ozera 6-Cavity Silicone Soap Mold
spray bottle with isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol
large glass Pyrex measuring cup
cutting board
utensils for stirring
Chef’s knife
digital scale
microwave

Instructions:

This DIY Star Wars melt and pour soap tutorial will yield six soap bars. It is important to note I used a basic, rather than a natural soap base, as the natural soap base tended to cool too quickly for neatly made soaps. However, you can experiment with other bases if you’d like and it’s quite likely you may have more patience and a steadier hand than me. Also important to note is that with a natural soap base, the clay will not sink to the bottom – which will become the top of your DIY Star Wars soap embeds – as it does in the basic soap base so the final appearance will differ.

To make your DIY Star Wars soaps, you’ll begin by making the Millennium Falcon and X-Wing soap embeds.

We will make the X-Wing soap embeds first. To do this, use a digital scale to weigh out 4.95 oz. of white melt and pour soap base. Using a Chef’s knife, cut it into chunks and place inside a Pyrex measuring cup. Heat for 30 seconds in the microwave. Remove the soap from the microwave using towel to grasp the handle of the measuring cup in case it’s hot, stir and add 1/8th chunk of one square of the pink pleasure soap color bar. Heat an additional 20-30 seconds until the soap is melted completely, watching to make sure it does not boil, then remove from the microwave and stir again until all of the color has dissolved and is evenly distributed. Now measure out and add 1/4 teaspoon of Australian Midnight Black Clay and stir well.

Allow the soap to cool slightly, then weigh out .01 oz. of the fragrance oil you’ve chosen to use. Add the fragrance oil to the melted soap base and stir well.

Set your Star Wars silicone mold onto a cutting board. Now slowly pour the melted soap evenly into all three of the Star Wars X-Wing mold cavities.

Next, spritz the top of the soaps you just poured with alcohol to remove any air bubbles.

You will now make the Millennium Falcon soap embeds.

To do this, use a digital scale to weigh out 4.8 oz. of white melt and pour soap base. Using a Chef’s knife, cut it into chunks and place inside a Pyrex measuring cup. Heat for 30 seconds in the microwave. Remove the soap from the microwave using towel to grasp the handle of the measuring cup in case it’s hot, stir and add 1/8th chunk of one square of the neon bikini blue soap color bar. Heat an additional 20-30 seconds until the soap is melted completely, watching to make sure it does not boil, then remove from the microwave and stir again until all of the color has dissolved and is evenly distributed. Now measure out and add 1/4 teaspoon of Australian Midnight Black Clay and stir well.

Allow the soap to cool slightly, then weigh out .01 oz. of the fragrance oil you’ve chosen to use. Add the fragrance oil to the melted soap base and stir well.

Now slowly pour the melted soap evenly into the remaining three Star Wars Millennium Falcon mold cavities.

Next, spritz the top of the soaps you just poured with alcohol to remove any air bubbles, then using the cutting board for transport, transfer your soap filled mold into the refrigerator.

You will now start on the base for your DIY Star Wars melt and pour soaps. To do this, begin by placing the 6-cavity rectangular mold onto a cutting board or small cookie sheet, then begin preparing the soap for this mold.

Weigh out 19.4 oz. of the clear melt and pour soap base. Using a Chef’s knife, cut it into chunks and place inside a Pyrex measuring cup. Heat for 30 seconds in the microwave. Remove and stir. Repeat until the soap is almost completely melted then add one square of the black sparkle soap color bar. Stir well, then continue heating in 30 second increments, stirring in between heatings, until the soap is melted completely.

Remove the melted soap carefully from the microwave and allow the soap to cool slightly. Now weigh out .35 oz. of fragrance oil and stir into the melted soap base.

You’ll now pour the melted soap evenly into each of the six mold cavities so each mold cavity is about halfway full. (DON’T fill the molds all the way up!)

Now spritz the top of the soaps you just poured with alcohol to remove any air bubbles and use the cutting board for transport to place your soap filled mold into the refrigerator.

Once the refrigerated soap has solidified and cooled completely, remove both of the molds from the refrigerator.

Carefully remove all of the X-Wing and Millennium Falcon Star Wars soap embeds from the mold and set on a flat surface.

Using your finger as a brush, “paint” the tops of each of the soaps with the Diamond Dust mica until the tops are covered. They do not need to be evenly covered. This will make the tops look like metal. Gently blow the tops of the soap to remove any excess mica.

Now set each of your Star Wars soap embeds into each of the six cavities of your rectangular mold so that one edge of each of the X-Wing soap embeds and the Millennium Falcon soap embeds are set outside of the mold cavity and on top of the edge of the mold.

Re-heat the remaining black tinted soap base from earlier just until it is smooth and fully melted again. If you overheat the soap, allow it to cool slightly. Otherwise the soap may cause the Star Wars soap embeds to bleed.

Now pour all of the remaining black tinted soap into the six rectangular mold cavities that contain the Star Wars ships until they are full.

Spritz the top of the soaps you just poured with alcohol to remove any air bubbles and again use the cutting board for transport to place your soap filled mold into the refrigerator.

Once your DIY Star Wars melt and pour soaps have solidified and cooled completely they are ready!

Simply remove them from the silicone mold.

If your DIY Star Wars melt and pour soaps have fingerprints where you removed them, simply spritz the outside of the finished soaps with rubbing alcohol and allow to dry. This will give them a glossy finish and remove any fingerprints. It will also add to the metallic look of the ships.

Now wrap your finished soaps in food service film and gift to your friends and family!

To figure out how much soap you need for your new Star Wars soap molds, simply melt down some of your melt and pour soap base and pour it into one cavity of the new mold. You’ll then use your digital scale to weigh out the amount of soap that cavity will hold. From there you’d use simple math to determine how much base to use for the number of DIY Star Wars soaps you’d like to make. Fragrance oil is typically used at about 2% of the soap weight. Therefore to determine the amount of fragrance oil you’d need simply multiply the weight of your soap base by 2% or .02.

Millennium Falcon Star Wars Jelly Soap Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

1 1/2 packages of Knox unflavored gelatin
2.5 oz. water (1/3 Cup)
5 oz. Dr. Bronner’s unscented liquid Castile soap (2/3 Cup)
.15 oz. fragrance oil of choice
black iron oxide pigment powder
white high glitter mica powder
red iron oxide pigment powder or rose red or pink mica (for hearts)

Supplies:

Star Wars silicone ice cube tray
Wilton Easy Flex Heart 24-Cavity Silicone Mold (for hearts)
large glass Pyrex measuring cup
spray bottle with isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol
cutting board
olive or vegetable oil
digital scale
sauce pan
spatula

Instructions:

To make your Millennium Falcon Star Wars jelly soaps, begin by very lightly greasing the insides of your Millennium Falcon mold cavities with either olive or vegetable oil. I did this by pouring a very small amount onto a washcloth and then rubbing it evenly all over the inside of the mold cavities. You should not have pools of oil in the mold, only a very fine film coating the insides of the cavities.

Further prepare your mold by lightly dusting the inside of the mold cavities with white or pearl mica. To do this, I took a pinch of mica with my fingers and sprinkled it into the mold. Repeat for each mold. Now hold the Star Wars mold over the sink and blow across the mold cavities to distribute the mica randomly across the inside of the mold. This will give the exterior of your Millennium Falcon Star Wars jelly soaps a metallic look.

Place the mold on a cutting board.

Now you’re ready to make your Star Wars jelly soap recipe.

Using a digital scale, weigh out the liquid Castile soap into a large glass Pyrex measuring cup. (Alternately measure out 2/3 Cup of liquid Castile soap.) Set aside.

Now weigh out the water. (Or measure out 1/3 Cup of water.) Pour the water into a small saucepan and place on the stove top over medium heat.

Once the water just starts to boil remove from heat. Add a pinch of black oxide pigment powder and the Knox gelatin. Using a spatula, stir until the gelatin dissolves completely and the pigment is evenly distributed throughout the water.

Now pour the gelatin into the liquid soap and mix well to thoroughly incorporate the gelatin with the liquid Castile soap.

If you are using an unscented Castile liquid soap, then you would weigh out your fragrance oil of choice at this point and stir it into the soap jelly recipe mix. (Alternately, you can use a scented Castile liquid soap and omit the fragrance oil.)

Now pour the jelly soap into the Millennium Falcon mold cavities. Any leftover soap can be poured into the X-Wing cavities or other prepared Star Wars silicone mold of choice. (Buy a collection of seven different silicone Star Wars soap molds here and save over buying them individually. Shipping is free if you’re an Amazon Prime member. If you’re not an Amazon Prime member you can sign up here.) Spritz the tops of the jelly soaps you just poured with alcohol to remove any air bubbles.

Now place the mold and cutting board – the cutting board will provide stability for your mold so the jelly soap doesn’t spill out – in the refrigerator.

Leave in the refrigerator for several hours to overnight.

Now gently unmold the Millennium Falcon Star Wars jelly soaps by slowly pushing the mold cavities from the bottom and turning about halfway inside out.

Store your jelly soaps in the refrigerator until ready to use. Then simply remove one jelly soap and use to bathe as you would with any regular bar soap. If you need you jelly soaps to hold up outside of the fridge, simply increase the amount of gelatin used. How much you need may vary based on temperatures in your area and other factors.This easy jelly soap recipe makes heart shaped jelly soaps for unique DIY Valentine's Day gifts.

Valentine’s Day Heart Jelly Soap Recipe

To make the heart shaped jelly soaps, follow the same jelly soap recipe that you used for the Star Wars jelly soaps.

Lightly grease the inside of nine of the heart shaped cavities in your Wilton heart silicone mold and place the mold on a cutting board.

When it’s time to add the colorant, you’ll omit the black oxide pigment powder and instead add a pinch of your choice of red iron oxide pigment powder or a pink mica of your choice.

Once you’ve mixed your jelly soap, pour it into the heart shaped cavities.

Now refrigerate the heart shaped jelly soaps for several hours to overnight.

Now unmold the heart shaped jelly soaps and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Need packaging ideas for your jelly soaps?  Simply layer your jelly soap hearts in a small glass canning jar with small squares of wax paper in between each of the jelly soaps.

Feel free to try this jelly soap recipe with other small silicone molds in fun shapes. I found that the thick, hard molds make the jelly soaps extremely difficult to get out in one piece. So use a silicone mold that’s a little on the flimsy side.
